Over the last decade, Vein Trio, based in Basel (Switzerland) has established a brilliant reputation among jazz audiences for both its stylistic diversity and its technical achievements, blending the complexity of European classical chamber music with the sensations and energy of the most sophisticated jazz improvisation. The three musicians, Michael Arbenz (piano), Thomas Lähns (double bass) and Florian Arbenz (drums) have a classical background and the musical direction is shared equally, generating a fluid and cosmopolitan sound.

Since its creation, the band has produced an album almost every year and has become known through long-standing collaborations with talented soloists, including trombonist Glenn Ferris and saxophonists Greg Osby, Dave Liebman and Andy Sheppard. Vein’s music is composed by all three members of the trio. The original works are adapted in the classical and jazz traditions, such as the acclaimed album, Vein Plays Ravel (2017).

Reviews

Vein go from strength to strength.

— John Fordham, The Guardian (London)

Nice work, get it! Incredibly creative piano trio.

— Rolling Stone (New York)

As dramatic a reinvention as it is, one imagines Ravel would enthusiastically approve.

— Textura Magazine (Ontario)
